Monday Morning Coming Down

I traveled last week. It's not something I get to do very often. I have a job that requires little travel and I almost never get to go anywhere for pleasure. It's a blessing just to pack a suitcase for me.

Of course, today, I am completely confused. Where am I? What am I supposed to be doing? I keep looking at my desk with a confused expression, trying to figure out where things are.

What are all these envelopes everywhere? How do you spell "spell?" What is wrong with my grammar?!? And typing?!?!

I hate this feeling. Fluttery and strange. Like I don't really belong here, I'm only playing a part. And, truthfully, I think today I am.

It's a bit like a hangover. Nothing seems to connect and now I've got to figure out how to get home.

I think I understand now why people who travel a lot hate it so much. I still don't. I still think that suitcases and packing lists and travel soap is exciting.

Anyone with me?

I have to admit that it was a little bit of weird to pack a bag for JUST ME. Have fun.

As I've said a billion times traveling for work on a frequent basis stinks. I have doubles and triples of some items and it seems like I never get my suitcase completely unpacked before its time to travel again. After awhile all airports and hotel rooms look the same. Now family travel is a whole different animal that I would do week after week with no complaints. But when you get back to the office it takes me a day or two to acclimate and say ok what do I need to do now.

Yeah, my suitcase is still in the middle of living room floor full of clothes. I've basically unpacked my toiletries and chargers. That's it. Maybe I'll do it this weekend. :)
